CENTRAL TEXAS (KXXV) -

For the Oct. 12 edition of Central Texas Living, we caught up with Jackie Darlene, a singer, songwriter that’s teaming up with other musicians for the Texas Music Flood, a relief concert series happening across the state to help raise money for Harvey victims.

The Waco native currently lives in Fort Worth and came back to Central Texas to perform in the concert fundraiser at the Backyard Bar and Grill on Oct. 8.

The Texas Music Flood is an ongoing and joint effort between various venues, artists, and promoters to raise as much money as possible.

The proceeds are going to the Rebuild Texas Fund, which will then be distributed to Texas communities and people in need.

During the interview, Darlene talked how much it means to her to come back home and be a part of a good cause.

Not only is she helping raise money, she’s also traveling on her solo acoustic tour performing popular songs from her current album.

Darlene also shared what her fans can expect from her in the future and when she will be releasing her full-length album.
